This week I had this really neat idea for a gift for my mother and Jay's mother on Mother's day. I thought I was so clever and that both women would really love it. Seriously I'm sure they would love a cute photo of the kids together.
I thought it would be really cute to get a photo of Bonnie & Chas with their cowboy hats on in the backyard. Today was really the first sunny morning and so I dressed up the kids a little - didn't want them looking too fancy. We marched out back and tried taking photos.
First off I couldn't get Bonnie or Chas near each other. Neither one would really stop moving.
Then I remembered at the last moment that Bonnie has lost the art of smiling. She just gets these funny faces unless I catch her smiling and she doesn't realize the photo is being taken.
I really didn't think it would be that difficult to photograph two youngsters but I was so very very wrong. Not a single photo came out how I'd thought it would be. I imagined this really great photo of the kids kind of looking at each other with their really cute smiles and looking as if they were having a great time. Oh well - I'm just laughing this one off as normal life.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day. I know we will.
